I’ve been in home for a little over a week. I’ve acclimated to trees, warm weather, and sandals again. When I think about the fact that I was in Iceland for a month, it doesn’t seem real. It feels like a dream. But it’s a dream that wouldn’t trade for anything. It’s through the boundry-stretching-fear-conquering-perspective-shifting experiences that produce new vision. I’m grateful that I was given the opportunity and I can’t wait for the next adventure.
Week Three and Four Adventures: We traveled to Southern and Eastern Iceland. We explored waterfalls in caves, drove through lava fields, visited harbor towns, and met some unique artisans along the way. I created artwork that was inspired by various landscapes. My last week consisted of exploring areas near Laugarvatn. We visited the sheep farm where the residency was located. One of the last places I visited was Þingvellir, a national park that is home to a canyon between two tectonic plates. In my opinion, it had the most breath-taking views in all of Iceland!
